Around the Corner

By Ali Grimshaw

She overcame
her internal screaming toddler,
“I don’t wanna. I don’t wanna.”

Will Power offered a hand
linking her arm in his
to lead around the corner.

Her first step through
this now open door
a route unavailable
to her past self.

     
Ali Grimshaw’s poems have been published on Poetry Breakfast, Vita Brevis and VerseWrights.
